Producers of an award-winning range of unpasteurised goats cheese, using vegetarian rennet.
The basic cheese is based on a full-fat Valancay-type variety, and shaped like a truncated pyramid and coated with an oak ash/sea salt - from France.
Various other variations such as 'Cerney Pepper' (rolled in coarse black pepper), 'Cerney Banon' (brandy-washed then wrapped in vine leaves) and 'Cerney Starter' (a smaller base-type cheese).
Although milk was produced on the farm during early days, this is now bought-in from neighbourhood farms. For more information contact Cerney Cheeses, Chapel Farm, North Cerney, Nr. Cirencester, Gloucestershire, GL7 7DE www.cerneycheese.com (http://www.cerneycheese.com)
